Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you are stuck, and looking for help, please come to the Newcomers help page, where experienced Wikipedians can answer any queries you have! Or, you can just type {{helpme}} on your user page, and someone will show up shortly to answer your questions. Here are a few good links for newcomers:

I noticed you are known only as an IP address; that means you are not signed up. To sign up, you only need to click Create account and choose a username and password. You don't need to provide any personal information. If you sign up, you'll have a username that others can use to recognize you and leave you messages on the wiki. You'll be able to sign your name just by typing four tildes (~~~~) when you leave someone else a message. Plus, you (and others) will easily be able to see a list of all your contributions to Wikipedia.

If you have any questions, see the help pages, ask at the Village pump, or feel free to ask me on my talk page. Again, welcome! DesertSky85451 22:16, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Hodding Carter III[edit]

Thanks for adding the extra sources to the article - have removed the sources tag from the article. The 2nd reference link (Divine Agitators) seems to require a login to see the full text, though, so you might want to include that in the reference. As for the cleanup/restructuring tag - probably should have explained that better but it looked like there was a long intro. Upon further review, I added a Biography section heading so that seems to structure things better. Therefore, the cleanup structure tag is also gone.

Hope you didn't find the editorial tags too distressing, the intent was to review and improve things. The Hodding Carter III article looks good so far. Also hope you enjoy your time at Wikipedia. Dl2000 03:22, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Yes, you can cite books and other print materials in Wikipedia, see WP:CITE (and WP:RS) for details. Dl2000 04:16, 6 October 2006 (UTC)


Yes, there is actually a tool. Go to Wikipedia:WikiProject User scripts/Scripts/Revert tools and add the code to your javascript page. For help in doing so, please go to Wikipedia:WikiProject User scripts/Tutorial. I apologize if I could not be of more assistance. Happy editing! --210physicq (c) 03:27, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Userpage problems[edit]

Hi there! I put your userboxes in a table so that they wouldn't overlap each other. You can learn more about organizing userboxes here. Let me know if you want more help (or if you hate the layout)! -- Merope 18:29, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Much thanks!!! I love it! Mnpeter 18:31, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:200px-Seven of nine.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:200px-Seven of nine.jpg. I notice the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this file yourself, then there needs to be a justification explaining why we have the right to use it on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you did not create the file yourself, then you need to specify where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the file also doesn't have a copyright tag, then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Yamla 20:08, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Image:200px-Seven of nine.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:200px-Seven of nine.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. --Yamla 20:08, 7 November 2006 (UTC)


You said: "I assumed that since it was used at, it was legitimate fair use."

Nope, sorry. Wikipedia is much stricter on fair-use images than most other sites. See WP:FUC for some more information. --Yamla 20:17, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:Riker-002.jpg)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Riker-002.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently specifies that the image is unlicensed for use on Wikipedia and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. MECUtalk 22:18, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

File:Heilige mis voetgebeden.jpg is indeed a nice photograph from our family collection of devotional photographs from the 1950s 'Rich Roman' (Roman Catholic) life of Catholics in the Netherlands in the mid 20th century, before the Second Vatican Council came and unleashed (practically, not de jure) destructive revolutions. Thank you and have a blessed Christmastide!Smith2006 (talk) 00:17, 25 December 2008 (UTC)
